Off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking over the larger obstacles landing a Tipperary handicap over 2m3½f off a 6lb lower mark last month. Interesting challenger in this contest.
Dual hurdle winner who is still looking for her first success over fences in eight starts. Well held at Wexford on latest start last month and losing run looks set to continue. First-time cheekpieces fitted.
Gradually getting the hang of life over the chase fences, the gelding ran well in defeat over 2m when third of 11 beaten 11½L at Wexford last month. Step up in trip not a concern.
Generally well beaten on both chase starts so far including a 12½L defeat at Wexford last month. Not in the form required to play a part.
Seven-race maiden in the Point-To-Point sphere, and hard to make a case for following a below-par efforts at Kilbeggan and at Wexford last month.
Course winner that has also won over this trip in his hurdling career. Seven-race maiden over fences the Trans Island gelding is not the most reliable of sorts and others hold stronger claims in this event.
Point-to-point winner who had shown signs of limited ability before finishing third of 10 beaten 9½L in a Roscommon handicap chase earlier this month over 3m½f on soft ground. Can give a good account of herself here.
Point-to-point winner in May but the gelding has looked bereft of any ability in a number of chase and hurdle starts in the last 12 months. Others make more appeal.
Modest hurdler who has been well held on both chase starts to date. Left with plenty to prove on the balance of her form since April.
Winner over C&D of a handicap on good ground in May off a 4lb lower mark. The mare has been well beaten since over further. Drop in trip a positive but overall form is a concern.
Mixed bag of returns from the daughter of Milan this term and needs to returning cheekpieces to weave their magic if the mare is to get into contention in this contest.
11-race national hunt maiden without success in five starts over fences. Has failed to complete in three of his four chase starts this term and is impossible to make a case for here.
Veteran who has not visited the winners enclosure since landing a Fairyhouse 2m5f chase six years ago off a 13lb higher mark. Easy to look elsewhere.
Winner of this contest 12 months ago off a 10lb higher mark. The gelding has struggled in a number of contests since and makes little appeal in his quest to win again.
